Trump Gives Psychotic Early Morning NFL Interview On ‘Fox & Friends (VIDEO)

Donald Trump is an insult machine. He blamed Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona, who is fighting for his life against brain cancer, for the failure of TrumpCare. Then, he called one of the nation’s top newspapers “the failing New York Times.” He even called the musical Hamilton “highly over-rated.” Yet this time, he has gone way too far.

The president told Fox & Friends that the NFL team owners were cowards who were “afraid of their own players,” Thursday. He was referring to the professional football athletes who protested against racism toward people of color during the games’ national anthem:

‘I have so many friends that are owners. And they’re in a box. I mean, I’ve spoken to a couple of them, they say “we are in a position where we have to do something.” I think they’re afraid of their players; you want to know the truth. It’s disgraceful.’

Unashamed, Trump made a comparison between the football rules against breast cancer symbols and the players’ protests on Fox & Friends:

‘They have rules for everything. You can’t dance in the end zone, you can’t wear the pink socks relative to breast cancer, they have rules for everything. Why aren’t they honoring this country by enforcing a rule that’s been in existence for a long time?’

Then, 45 made up a false argument that the teams’ owners had to choose between their fans and players or lose their ratings. In fact, ratings for Sunday’s games and Monday night’s games increased:

‘They’ve got to be tough, and they’ve got to be smart. Because you look at the ratings, the ratings are going way down. Stadiums are, I’ve seen a couple of stadiums over the last few weeks, there are a lot of empty seats. I couldn’t even believe it.’

In another false argument, the president said that the players’ protests were against the nation’s flag:

‘But when it comes to the respect of our nation, when it comes to the respect our anthem and our flag, they have no choice.’

Trump commanded the NFL owners to “drag (kneeling players) off of the field” and fire them during his rally in Alabama. His voice rose to hell-and-brimstone levels when he said to fire them, according to CNN:

‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired. He’s fired!’

In one of his Tuesday morning tweets, the president said:

‘The NFL has all sorts of rules and regulations. The only way out for them is to set a rule that you can’t kneel during our National Anthem!’
